K&A Scope:

Design fabrication method, manufacture and deliver all-composite cube with artist specified optical opening in the ceiling to accommodate entry through open bottom submerged in the pool.

 

Description:

Skyspace is a stunning example of contemporary architectural design. The exterior walls are made up entirely of flat panels using vacuum infusion and double thickness wood placed inside for structural support before being coated in polymer concrete after sandblasting - all without compromising any weather protection or insulation! In addition, this space can accommodate seating and mechanical equipment from other projects, making it not only versatile but also incredibly practical, too.
